    as long as the forced air bator has been running a couple days to make sure it is at the right temp. Forced air bators are generally better than still airs.

    At that age, yes. I did try to hatch moving egss from a still air to the forced air and not a single one hatched, and I know they were wiggling when they were relocated, so I won't do that again!!
    Good Luck!

    We move our forced air incubated eggs to still air for hatching, so imagine the opposite would be ok as long as the temps and humidity was correct.
